How many 90 point guys go from 70 points to 50 points when they are 24?
The same 90 point guy who misses 17 more games in the 53 point season then the 77 point season, played 20 of his 64 games hurt on a team that scored 40+ fewer goals then it did the previous year, and the lowest goal total in the NHL.

Hemsky is not being traded, and yes; Kovalchuk has more value then him (and probably always will). Hemsky is a rare type of player. Every negative thing I've heard San Jose and Calgary fans say about him over the last year has been fiction. That he's "injury prone" or "inconsistent" -- I've watched every possible Oilers game over the last two-years, and he's neither.

The thing is, Hemsky is a catalyst for getting other players to produce. Kovalchuk will always score 40 goals a season, but Hemsky can help his line-mates score 30-40 goals they wouldn't be able to without him.

And maybe it's just me, but scoring 77 points despite being in the bottom fifth of the league in shots sounds like an accomplishment to me.

Hemsky can't even shoot the puck, I'm not sure if that word is part of his vocabulary. Maybe he should take lessons from Alexander Ovechkin.

"Oh my god! Puck! I must shoot!"

oilers do not have the cap space for him

anyway considering the original source of the rumour--not much a legit rumour IMO

Kovy is the face of a beleaguered franchise, and there's just not much in EDM that I'd trade him for. The two clubs aren't good partners.

Hemsky's good, but he prob'ly wouldn't be able to sell tickets like Kovy does in ATL. Kovy's a flashy player who, well, at least before Hartley came here, was a ton of fun to watch. Hemsky's abilities likely would be somewhat wasted on the relatively nuance-ignorant fans in the ATL. Plus, a Kovy-for-Hemsky trade doesn't solve anything.

If im atl and they need to move him, i dont settle for anything outside:

Hemsky
EDM1
Cogliano

thats a good start but still feel like not enough inless its top 5 pick


You cant buy somene like kovvy, Hemsky is a dime a dozen star, flasy, good skill set. Cogliano is pretty damn good top 6 forward which would help add depth, and the first wound be pretty good
